    96E1C1CD-0F8B-489B-A66A-52C12C0938A6.jpg I recently came on boasting about sox behaviour I'm sad to say he has let himself down.

    A deer broke cover literally right in front of us I grabbed Loki but thought I could trust big boy. But no he chased the deer. Loki spun round to see where sox was going and my finger got caught in his harness don't ask how but I couldn't get free and my finger was being twisted.

    Meanwhile sox is no where to be seen im blowing my whistle finally free we go to find Sox who has gone off through the muddiest field.

    Just as I'm really panicking Sox appears in the distance a tiny dot sprinting towards us. Covered in mud and tired.

    My finger swollen. Sox thirsty tired poor Loki did not know what was going on.

    No regret

    Oops! Nobody’s perfect ;)

    He did come back though - yay! :)

    I’ve had the finger thing - Jack used to spin in the early days when dogs ran over - ouch!

    I can't get cross with him I just gave him a big hug because I thought he'd be lost or have his arse whooped by a deer.

    Why oh why do they do that it was so close I could have touched it. I think Loki thinks we are mad.

    Uh oh, in the dog house. He did come back in one piece at least.
    Threads like these do make me kind of glad I live in barren suburbia where cats and foxes are all you have to watch for. Gelert would never be able to resist deer.

    One of my previous dogs would go miles after a deer and totally ignore us. We could hear her yelping with excitement gradullay getting fainter and fainter, hugely worrying. She wasn’t as clever as Sox though as she could never find her way back again. We would hear the helping again, this time it was her that was worried as she realised she was lost and couldn’t find us, so we would whistle and yell until she found us with a relieved look on her face. We always kept her on a lead in woodland where deer were likely to be. Thankfully Isla is easy to call off from a deer chase.

    I’m not surprised Sox chased the deer, it’s too irresistible when they jump up right under his nose.

    I keep mine on in woodland this was open farming fields because my finger was trapped and I could move all I could do was blow my whistle lol. Not sure what the dear was doing. Sox has never moved so fast !

    Dexter did this to me once.
    2 deer come flying out of a bush swiftly followed by a ginger thing giving it his absolute everything to keep up.
    Thankfully the deer split up and went in opposite directions which confused he of little brain, and he stopped. Got in a right strop because I wouldn't assist him in his quest to provide dinner, and was so pumped with adrenaline it took him hours to come down again.
    As a positive I think it taught him that deer are bloody quick- much quicker than he, and so it's really not worth the effort. ( He's seen deer in the same field as him, and looked, then ignored.)

    Sox just came home and passed out. Not even sure how far he went.

    Ah don't I'm sure I'll end up on you tube one day. That video is brilliant I'm sure dogs are here to bring us shame.

    Kenzie took off after a deer once - so scary! But she came back to the exact spot she left from (I posted my friend on that spot while I ran around frantically yelling for her).

    Glad Sox is safe and sound, it’s not his fault really! :p
